Super Bowl 57 is just over a week away as the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs get ready to battle for the NFL championship. Before the Big Game kicks off, let’s take a look at some NFL player props and top picks at Monkey Knife Fight (use promo code ALARM at sign-up). The site offers plenty of contests and prop games for Super Bowl 57 with both Chiefs and Eagles players featured. For this article, we’re going to pick some Super Bowl props in the “More or Less” contests. All you have to do is choose whether NFL players will have “More” or “Less” than their posted prop – similar to “Over” or “Under” if you’re used to that. Let’s dive into some NFL Super Bowl 57 prop picks at Monkey Knife Fight.
Super Bowl 57 Player Props Top Picks
DeVonta Smith, Philadelphia Eagles – OVER 65.5 Receiving Yards
Although DeVonta Smith has failed to go over this 65.5 receiving yards mark in both playoff games so far, this Super Bowl matchup should be a different story. The Eagles were winning big over both the Giants and 49ers in these past two games and simply didn’t need to throw much, if at all, in the second halves. This game vs Kansas City will undoubtedly be close throughout and Philadelphia will be forced to throw it more often. Enter Smith, who went over 65.5 receiving yards in nine of 17 regular season games this year. He also went over this number in four straight games to end the regular season. Plus, the Chiefs allowed two Bengals receivers to go over 65.5 yards (Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase) and one Jaguars wideout (Zay Jones) in their two playoff matchups thus far.
Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs – OVER 6.5 Receptions
At first glance, getting more than 6.5 receptions for any pass-catcher is a tough ask. However, this is Travis Kelce we’re talking about and it’s almost a guarantee he’ll be putting on a show in the Super Bowl. Yes, Kelce had six receptions or fewer in 11 of 17 regular season games. But he’s racked up 14 and seven catches in the Chiefs’ playoff games on 17 and eight targets, respectively. The Kansas City tight end now has at least seven receptions in four straight playoff games dating back to last season and in seven of the last eight postseason matchups. Patrick Mahomes looks Kelce’s way more often in the playoffs and we can expect the same in the Super Bowl. The Eagles boast an elite pass rush and pass defense overall, so Mahomes should be looking for quick and easy completions to his tight end all game.
Miles Sanders, Philadelphia Eagles – UNDER 57.5 Rush Yards
With how dominant the Eagles’ run game has looked all season and during this playoff run, it’s definitely risky taking an under for any Philly rushing yards prop. However, this number seems a tad too high for Miles Sanders. First off, Sanders is still splitting snaps and touches with both Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott in the Eagles backfield. That committee approach limits Sanders’ upside right away. He’s certainly capable of breaking off a long gain or two and racking up 100+ yards, but that’s not likely in this Super Bowl. Then there’s Jalen Hurts, who could be taking away yards from Sanders and running it more than he has since returning from injury. Plus, we can add in the strong possibility that Philadelphia will be throwing it more often – especially if trailing at all and trying to keep pace with the Chiefs. For what it’s worth, Sanders has gone under 57.5 rushing yards in six of the last 11 games including the NFC championship.
